Dr Hasan Mahmud will leave Dhaka Tuesday for India in his first bilateral visit abroad as foreign minister after swearing in of the new government.

His visit would take place from February 7-9 at the invitation of his counterpart S Jaishankar.

The visit reflects the high importance and priority both countries attach to their bilateral relationship, the Indian External Affairs Ministry said.

​During the visit, both ministers will hold talks, in which both leaders will review the progress in wide-ranging areas of bilateral relations and chart out the agenda for future engagement.

They will also exchange views on sub-regional, regional and multilateral issues of common interest, said the external affairs ministry.

Earlier, Hasan Mahmud, replying to a question at a briefing, said he would meet his counterpart Jaishankar, Commerce Minister Piush Goyal and National Security Adviser AjitDoval.

He said Rohingya refugee issue would also come up during the meeting.

"We earlier sought the support of India for Rohingya repatriation. We will also discuss the Myanmar security situation as both our countries have borders with Myanmar," he said.
